Glad I could be of service. I've never had another bout of vertigo. I always carry motion-sickness pills, and take them when I think I'm getting dizzy. I doubt it's necessary, but it makes me feel in control. (It also puts me to sleep, as often as not.) I don't ever want to go through it again, but yes, knowing in advance should make a difference.

He mostly avoided condescension ... he was a singer himself, and I imagine he appreciated the rock and rollers, even if their music wasn't his. And his show had some excellent guests.

Yep. The world isn't tired of them yet. Working their way through the generations ... people like me (and older), people like you and Rob, all the way to people like your daughter.

I know what you mean. These should be fairly easy. Yet I've only guessed one correctly, and she had included the Sex Pistols, which if she'd seen them, I'd know, so it was a gimme. There's something look-at-me-I'm-preening about these lists, but nonetheless I'm fascinated by the acts people have seen.

I'm hot and cold on modern slapstick in general, and always figure I'm missing something with non-U.S. slapstick (see Stephen Chow, who always seems more tied to HK culture than Jackie Chan, who seems more universal). But I found it tolerable here.
